Terry Boston, executive vice president of Tennessee Valley Authority's (TVA) power system operations, has been named president and CEO of PJM Interconnection, the entity that ensures the reliability of an electric power system serving 51 million people in the U.S.

"We're fortunate to have an executive of Terry Boston's caliber, whose extraordinary career at the nation's largest electricity wholesaler and public power provider has prepared him extremely well to lead PJM into the future," says Board Chairman Howard Schneider. "These are some of the most challenging times faced by our industry, and Terry is the person to help us meet those challenges."

Boston joined TVA as a power supply engineer in 1972 and was named head of the Power Supply Group in 1980. Over the next 16 years, he directed three TVA divisions in succession - transmission, regional operations and electric system reliability.

As executive vice president, Boston led TVA's efforts to develop formal arrangements with neighboring utilities and regional transmission organizations in creating a transmission network to preserve reliability and enhance wholesale electricity markets.
